my parents are the same.
hell, my entire family is the same.

whenever we go or plan to go abroad something horrible happens somewhere in the world either DURING the trip or right before it.
the Mumbai attacks, the volcano eruption in Europe a year ago, the second Lebanon war, hell 9/11 happened a week before my first trip ever to the states.

its probably a conspiracy of some sorts.

Arab League Suspends Syria. Looks like even the other Arab countries have had enough of the killings.

An actual trope in action.

I doubt it's going to actually change much but here's hoping it does (for the better). At least it helps them lose what little credibility they had. What irked me about the Libyan revolution is the rather bizarre amount of support Gaddafi had among the population in other countries.

Being head of a pan-African movement...and having the money to support it, gets you friends.

Proves that you have to watch what you put and said on the net because once things are up, they could not really go away.
Gosh, that's terrible.

Now excuse me, I have to go google some.... Uh, work related researches.

17 years. How'd they let that douche stick around for so long? Wish I could've joined those singers in "Hallelujah", and maybe start off a round of this song.

He got money and a big part of Italy's media, that helped a lot.

He also didn't serve continuously during that time, he had 3 non-consecutive terms, 9 years in all, which is fairly unique in and of itself.

Italy seems to have had a hot and cold relationship with the guy. Let's hope he's gone for good.

Saying thus, I really want to ask those porn starlets, be they western or eastern, what they really think of the countless adults videos starring them that are now up in public domain and how do they cope with those fanatical fans.
It'd have been better if she took advantage of the publicity (even though it's negative) and milked it for all its worth.

At her age, I believe that she is unable to cope with the sudden fame without assistance from a Spin Doctor. Maybe if she is older.....

And of course, given the nature of said fame, there is very few outlets to milk it from. And most of them arn't very desirable, I might add, when you take into consideration of the current morale standing of our society.

But back to the main point here. Which is being the Net isn't what it used to be, so take care of how you project yourself on it, even if hidden behind a wall of anonmity.

Given her underage status in the pictures, it'd be illegal anyway.

No no no, the only real love interest I've been introduced to in the plot so far is a childhood friend of mine.

Unless they've actually been raised together, from before they were six, it shouldn't come into play.

Provided the people visiting the sites don't sticky the photos.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.
